Letter: Next president should use Internet in government, but how?

Regarding "Editorial: Presidential transform": I appreciated FCW's editorial urging presidential candidates to embrace competitive technology. Having at least a basic understanding of the Internet seems like a no-brainer, and it is surprising that Sen. McCain still needs help to read a newspaper article online.

I would, however, encourage FCW to go further: a proposal, in brief, of concrete ways our future president can leverage Internet resources to the betterment of the administration and the country would do far more than simply announcing the concern.
